Shaun King, who claims to be black, but who has been outed as white, is constantly stirring the racial pot.
In the piece below, King lies his way into justifying banning white men, rather than as he puts it banning Muslims.
It’s pretty easy to refute his stupidity, which carried the following photo with the article:
On this past Sunday, in a bit of tongue-in-cheek hyperbole, I tweeted that if our country truly wanted to ban a demographic in the name of halting mass shootings, it would be best to ban white people. After all, white people, white men to be particular, and not African-Americans or Latinos or immigrants or Muslims are responsible for the overwhelming majority of America’s mass shootings.
What I really wanted to see, though, was whether or not the mention of such a ban would irritate the very conservatives whose candidate of choice, Donald Trump, has repeatedly called for such a ban on Muslim immigrants when the truth is that only one Muslim immigrant has ever participated in the 30 deadliest mass shootings in modern American history.
Banning Muslim immigrants would hardly stop any mass shootings in this country. If stopping mass shootings is the goal — and banning people is how we do such a thing — then a good old ban of white men would undoubtedly be the most effective way to handle things.
Of course, it rattled a lot of folks. It was meant to. It was also meant to reveal the hypocrisy of just how willing one group is to get behind such a ban when they don’t think it would impact them, but completely go bonkers when you suggest they be banned instead.
Immediately the conservative tweets and blogs starting rolling in calling me a bigot, or a racist, and saying I was outrageous for proposing such an idea. Suddenly, when it was them being banned, the idea was incomprehensible, disgusting and infuriating. For just a brief moment they experienced just a tiny bit of the reality of what it must feel like to have someone say you or loved ones should be banned. Except I’m not the Republican nominee for President.
Banning people, any people, from this nation, is the dumbest, most bigoted, ridiculous notion ever proposed. I completely agree.
It’s simply not how it works. We’re not Nazis. Isolating a group of people because of their religion, nationality, ethnicity or sexual orientation and banning them, in the name of safety or security or anything else, is a recipe for disaster.
However, the logic of my point remains. People calling for a ban on Muslim immigrants aren’t interested in stopping mass shootings. They aren’t interested in making this country safer. They’re just bigots and bigots always need a target. Before it was Muslims or Mexicans or immigrants, the list of who angry white men despised and wanted to kill or relocate en masse has been well populated for hundreds of years.
In reply to King, Trump’s ban is a temporary travel ban on all people from five countries. I believe there are something like 50 Muslim countries that can still send people to the U.S.
Secondly, banning Muslims is a good idea not just to prevent terrorist acts, but to prevent polluting Western culture with Sharia law, burkas, and other manifestations of medieval Islam.
Third, although I’m not going to do King’s research for him, I believe that crime statistics show that white and asian males have the lowest rate of violent crime. Blacks have the highest. By logic, blacks (like King since he says he’s black) should be banned.
Besides, white males do not kill in the name of a religious ideology. Muslims do. Their religion commands it.
King is a provocateur who should be ignored. He’s far from a serious thinker.
The following Tweet subtly mocks King. If white men were banned, Shaun King would be banned too.
